Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Monday spoke out in favor of legalizing marijuana, noting that the drug brings joy and that: "And we need more joy in the world.”


The Daily Beast reports that Harris, who joined the Democratic presidential primary, told radio hosts on the show The Breakfast Club that she smoked a joint in college "and I did inhale," she said, a reference to former President Bill Clinton's claim to not have inhaled when he tried pot. “I just broke loose,” Harris said.
